Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen. (2 Timothy 2:14 NIV)
In this scripture Paul is instructing a young leader, Timothy to keep reminding God’s people not to quibble about doctrine. The items in Revelation that we have no absolute interpretation of, should not cause petty disagreements. We should be able to look at the items we can definitely identify and agree to disagree about the rest. The last three trumpets are events we should be willing to disagree about for they most definitely could be metaphorical.

Before I understood the principles of God being just, I really thought that every Christian who really sought God would walk as Peter did once God’s glory was being poured out. Many have desired to walk in the anointing of the disciples like in the Book of Acts, especially Peter who healed all those who came into a shadow’s distance from him.
Jesus’ Point of View
During the worship preceding this meeting, as we sang songs about being beside still waters receiving the provision of the Lord, God showed me a vision:
The enemy is building up his forces to usher in the Horsemen of the Apocalypse that will affect many aspects of every government. God will not dispatch Michael to disperse the enemy for this must come to pass so that the prophecies in Revelation can be fulfilled and for God’s will to be done.
We must be attached to the vine, guided by our Lord, to receive the provision He has for us. Jesus longs to lead you beside still waters. Come and learn from Him!

After this I saw four angels stationed at the four corners of the Earth, firmly holding back the four winds of the Earth so that no wind should blow on the Earth or sea or upon any tree. (Revelation 7:1 AMPC)
The four winds are usually mentioned as “being released” in connection with a great judgment coming from God (Ezekiel 37:9; Daniel 7:2; Zechariah 2:6). Now the four winds are being firmly “held back.” There is a space of time when God will halt judgment: this is echoed in the beginning of the next chapter:

When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains… (Matthew 24:15-16 AKJV)
When our Lord was asked when He would come to rule and reign, He warned His followers to watch for the Abomination spoken of by Daniel. We have identified this as the AntiChrist appearing in the temple of God halfway through the tribulation. Those in Israel are told to flee to the mountains. This may not literally mean to run into the hills.
While writing this article, the Lord led me to 1 Corinthians 15 where Paul speaks about this life and the next, to demonstrate why He was revealing our abilities in Heaven.
But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?” You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. (1 Corinthians 15:35-38 ESV)
The apostle begins with a metaphor about seeds which must die to receive their full glory. What we sow in this life is only a seed for what will grow to the fullness when we die and receive our eternal body. Paul relates it to our existence in this way:

A bastard shall not enter into the congregation of the LORD; even to his tenth generation shall he not enter into the congregation of the LORD. (Deuteronomy 23:2 AKJV)
The Hebrew word mamzēr (mam-zare’ ) is translated “bastard” in the King James Versions of the Bible, but is sometimes translated to mean “illegitimacy.” It not only means those who are born outside of wedlock or in incest, but the root of the word means to contemn (regard with contempt), to despise, or be ashamed of. If a pregnancy happens outside of marriage and the parents speak words of rejection, shame, or are regarded with contempt because of it, the same curse comes to that family line.
When a child is born outside of wedlock, there is a curse that goes on to the tenth generation. Ten generations means that it can be passed on from any one of our 1024 ancestors. With so many people able to affect us in this way, this curse applies to most people.

Blessed is he that reads, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. (Revelation 1:3 AKJV)
We obediently study the book of Revelation, even if we may not understand all that is written within. We thank you Lord for blessing us as we do this, granting us wisdom about when it is at hand.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.” (Matthew 24:9 ESV)
We have established that the words of our Lord confirm that there will be a seven-year period of time of great tribulation. Jesus referenced the prophecy of Daniel before this statement, which ties these two events together.
The prior chapters of Revelation showed the churches upon the Earth and what they needed to do to be in right alignment with God. In this chapter, we now see what is happening in Heaven.
...These things said He that is holy, He that is true, He that has the key of David, He that opens, and no man shuts; and shuts, and no man opens (Revelation 3:7 AKJV)
We have previously stated that Jesus has the key of David and is holding open a door which leads to Heaven and the Secret Place. How do we know this is the door the Lord opens? It is best to let the Bible provide the interpretation when possible.
When you therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoever reads, let him understand:) (Matthew 24:15 AKJV)
We are told by our Lord what to look for and how to recognize this event as being close to the time of persecution and His return to rule and reign. This also means Christians will be around when it happens. What is the “abomination of desolation?” Discussing the events surrounding the return of our Lord should show us what to look for and help us pinpoint the time of this event and invigorate the body of Christ. After all, we are all expectantly waiting for this time. Unfortunately, instead of uniting us as a body that is working for the Kingdom of Heaven, it often creates division and strife.

When I initially began studying the churches in the Book of Revelation, the Lord revealed something to me in the Secret Place. The visit with Him began like many others, with us dancing in the gazebo of the Secret Place. With great excitement, He took me by the hand and said, “I have something I want to show you!”
Today we will complete the teachings on the Revelation churches. As I spent time with the Lord in the Secret Place, He had a message for all His churches:
I love you, I love you, My beautiful bride.
I came for you, gave all for you, to be by My side.
Look to Me, walk with Me, do not waiver left or right.
The path is narrow, not broad nor wide, be guided by the Light.
I wait for you, long for you, My love, My
I wait for you, long for you, My love, My beautiful bride.

seals brought about the emergence of the AntiChrist. We discovered that it may
take a year before the next seal is broken which should occur after the
beginning of Daniel’s Week. If we examine the books of Daniel and Revelation,
we will find clues to help us determine the key events to watch for. Much of the world may be unaffected at first,
so knowing what to look for is vital!

The Revelation of John contains a lot of events and items which may be metaphoric, based in the time period it was written. We can create many theories, but much of the contents may not be correctly interpreted until they come to pass. For this reason, we must learn to agree to disagree on some things.
Our salvation doesn't depend upon correctly interpreting the information given in Revelation. This is food for thought and consideration.
For I testify to every man that hears the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add to these things, God shall add to him the plagues that are written in this book:

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. (Psalms 27:5 AMPC)
In this Psalm, David refers to the Secret Place as the “tent” of the Lord. Jesus will visit with us there, not as the Lord who reigns over Heaven and Earth, but as our Beloved and our Brother.
On a visit to the Secret Place, He asked me to tell you about this realm; a place that our Heavenly Father set apart, where we can see not only Jesus, but Abba (Papa, Daddy), instead of Almighty God and the Holy Spirit, as our dear Friend. In order to visit with Him in the Secret Place on a regular basis, we must “overcome” the enemy as described in Revelation. If we will:

And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Smyrna write: These are the words of the First and the Last, Who died and came to life again… (Revelation 2:8 AMPC)There is a church who needs to remember that Jesus was the First Born of many and the Last sacrifice we need. They also need to remember that He died, but was brought to life again.

Jesus wants you to know about some basic ways Heaven works. The journey to discover this information began one Monday, during the Dream Interpretation meeting on Zoom. I lost all WiFi connection, then came back in with data on my phone. Within 10 minutes, again I was kicked out and this time I couldn’t open the Zoom app on my phone.

People who have had a near-death experience (NDE) or have been taken to Heaven, explain it as vivid beyond description. This is one part or one aspect of Heaven. To fully understand experiencing Heaven in this way, we must look to the Word of God.
The Old Testament is written in Hebrew and the New Testament was originally written in Greek. If we look to the language of God’s people, the Hebrew word most often used for Heaven is shamayim. It refers to the “unseen” or “invisible” realm and is both singular and plural. Most Christians agree that Heaven is a “spirit realm” because Jesus declared that God is a spirit being:

We will continue studying the Book of Revelation, not assuming we will find all the answers, but knowing much will remain a mystery until the events begin to unfold. We are quite willing to agree to disagree on many of the interpretations which are only “theory” and cannot be proven at this time. We study the Revelation of John so that our minds are open to possibilities, should these events begin to happen in our generation.
One of the blessings of Revelation is that through studying it we can identify some of the plans of the enemy. On the surface, it oftens seems cryptic and impossible to understand. If we let the Bible, and especially the Book of Revelation interpret inself, we can get a glimpse into the playbook of Satan’s army.
And I stood on the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads the name of blasphemy. (Revelation 13:1 AKJV)
Just as the prior chapter briefly recounted Israel’s history, now a recap of Satan’s activity is given. Most of the imagery in Revelation is metaphorical. Let’s examine other scriptures to see how to interpret them. The beast is fully revealed in a later chapter, so let us start at the beginning.
Before we discuss the churches of Revelation, the Lord has asked me to show you what it means to be the Bride of Christ, since the Church is the Bride. When Jesus refers to us as His bride, is more than a title, it is how He feels about you. If you were engaged to be married to the person of your choosing, how would you feel about them? Here is how the Lord revealed His feelings to me:

“However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you…” (John 16:13 NKJV)
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things…” (John 14:26 NKJ)
When Jesus returned to Heaven He said it was better for us that He leave so He could send the Holy Spirit who would teach us, guide us, help us, and write the laws of God on our hearts (John 16:17, Jeremiah 31:33). Our heart is not the thing that pumps our blood, it is what we cannot live without, our spirit. This is the breath of God which is our eternal being.

Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he reveals his secret to his servants the prophets. (Amos 3:7 AKJV)
The Hebrew word sôḏ (sode) is translated secrets, but means secret counsel. God reveals His plans to those whom He calls as prophets. The Word of God, from the Old Covenant to the New, Genesis to Revelation, paints a complete picture of His entire plan for mankind. Hundreds of prophecies were fulfilled by the first coming of Jesus, yet God’s people, Israel, failed to recognize the events as they unfolded.

Hidden Prayer for Secret Place Visits
Standing strong while you wait on God to do as He has promised can be hard. The Bible speaks of it this way:
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth… (Ephesians 6:13-14 ESV)
We stand against all the enemy brings against us while we wait for God to open the door to the Secret Place. I will not explore the entire armor of God here, but the “belt of truth” is what will fuel your tank while driving toward your destiny before meeting with the Lord face-to-face. The Word of God, the Bible, is the truth. It is the first thing mentioned when describing the armor of God. We have some hidden truth about the Secret Place that we can apply here!
You may have heard about the Aaronic blessing, but do you know what it meant to those who initially received it. In order to understand the fullness of what God wants to give us, we need to research the section of the Bible where the blessing originated. We need to look at two factors for greater understanding:
NOT Visiting the Secret Place
Over a year ago, the Lord told me to visit Him every day in the Secret Place to be strengthened and receive instruction. I took this very seriously and did my utmost to spend time in worship and meditation. Occasionally I’d miss a day and quickly repent.
Last month we recarpeted our entire house. For three weeks we moved everything from the rooms and pulled up the old carpet. On top of this, I decided to repaint one of the largest rooms as well. Needless to say, I was quite busy, working long into the night. Because of this, my meditation time was shortened.
But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.... to another discerning of spirits… (1 Corinthians 12:7-10 KJV)
The Holy Spirit brings gifts to help us in this life. It is critical that the full body of Christ, the worldwide Church, uses the gift of discernment for all things. The Greek word diakrisis (dee-ak'-ree-sis) is translated as discerning, but it also means distinguishing or judging. Some may be given a very strong gift of discernment from the Holy Spirit, but as a mature Christian we should all have a basic level of discerning good from evil.

When I was called into ministry, I asked the Lord, “Are you sure it should be me? Many countries and denominations don’t believe a woman can lead or teach.”
Before I began the journey into my calling, Holy Spirit took me through the New Testament scriptures which spoke about women leaders and put my heart to rest. In the last week the Lord has sent seven people to inquire about women leaders. It is clear that He wants me to share what He has revealed with His body. Paul wrote many letters instructing Christians addressing how the Body of Christ should be organized. In order to fully understand what he wrote, we must:
And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 AKJV)
Apostle Paul identified three parts of every person when writing to the Thessalonians. We are a spirit being in a physical body with a soul (mind, will, and emotions). God is composed of three parts, and so are we as His children. The spirit part of our being is perhaps the most challenging to understand but it is also the part of our being that connects with our Father the most. We can and should connect with our Father, who is a Spirit, in Heaven.

There are two early journal entries I’d like to share with you to help you stay out of the weeds and avoid potholes while you travel the Roadmap to Heaven.
The trials of the last month fade away as I recall how the Lord has confirmed that this is His will for me. I am going to Heaven! Maybe not tonight, maybe not even tomorrow, but He has confirmed it: I'm going. The miraculous story of meeting my 8 ft tall guardian angel, Richard, face to face can be found in the free book Angels Believe in You.
The time in between breaths becomes long as my body completely relaxes. Inside, I rejoice, praising the Lord for His goodness. I am going to Heaven! My spirit soars with joy. Tingling power flows across my body in a strong wave each time I breathe out. Again and again power floods through me like waves of a torrential downpour.
Wednesday, February 10, 2021
The fourth and final signpost is “time.” It was the hardest to accept and I have struggled with it from the beginning. One of my earliest journal entries I recorded while walking the Roadmap, when I was very young in my walk, shows how God revealed this to me in a very personal way:
As I get comfortable for the night, my thoughts speaking to the Lord aren’t exactly respectful: “What's up with this? All day today your presence has been surrounding me and now that I'm here, ready to meditate, You don't even call me? I thought we were practicing for Heaven?”
Silence surrounds me. The Big Guy offers no guidance.

Today in the Secret Place the trend of rhyming in song continued. I won’t repeat the exact words, for that is very time consuming. Here is the gist of what occurred:
As we danced, the Lord pointed out that I was slightly out of rhythm with Him. Mentally, I went through all the challenges and tasks awaiting me and released each one to Him. Our steps finally came into sync.
There was one particular project heavy upon my heart. I began asking the Lord questions about it. Our steps got out of sync once more. A wistful smile played about His lips as He asked, “Do you not yet realize that I know what your need is? That I will bring the answer without you asking?”
The questions reminded me of my earthly husband, Tony. He is happiest when he is hard at work and loves to take care of me. Not only is he a great provider for our family, he has let me follow my heart into ministry though it isn’t something he understands or desires.
I looked to the Lord for confirmation, “Is that why You brought Tony to be my husband? So that I would experience what it is like to be taken care of? To have my needs thought of on a daily basis?”
“It is the way a husband should care for his wife and am I not to be your Husband?” He answered.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty… (Psalms 91:1 AMPC)
God would not have Moses begin this psalm by stating it only applies to those who are dwelling in the Secret Place if it were not His will for all of His people to come and be with Him there. This is a Moses generation. God wants to bring all His children to “The Secret Place” where He can speak to them face-to-face. He did this with Moses, and it was His original intent to have all of Israel visit Him this way.
Friday, January 15, 2021
The next two signposts came quietly as I tried to push into the Secret Place once more. I wasn’t at all sure they were the signposts. Surely it couldn’t be that easy. It is very fitting that I had to seek confirmation from the Lord for more than a week before I knew it was the next step to the visit with God.
Most people think of desire as a strong wish or a craving for something. This is only a small part of what the Holy Spirit communicated to me as the meaning of the third step in visiting Heaven. Desire is associated with passion and passion with love. Do you want to visit with God because you love Him and want to get to know Him better? Or is it just to have a new experience? Are you looking to connect with your Father who will be with you for all eternity? Or do you want some spiritual gifts to impress your friends and family.
